Truck dealer, MV Commercial, has appointed Anwaar Khan as General Manager of its Luton depot, under plans to grow the company’s UK footprint. Khan, 33, moves into the role after four-and-a-half years as Senior Operations Manager at Northgate Vehicle Hire. He will lead a team of 17 at the Luton site, which due to its proximity to London is a strategically important location for MV Commercial’s operations in England.
With a major refurbishment and expansion of the Luton branch underway, MV Commercial has tasked Khan with growing the rental and contract services sides of the business, where the firm’s 400-strong Ready to Go fleet includes its tipper grabs and tractor units, as well as beavertails, rigids, curtainsiders, dropside trailers and vans.
“I’m excited to join MV Commercial during a period of significant growth for the company, with investment in the fleet and services offered from our Luton site being critical for the business,” he says. “We are increasing our Ready to Go stock to meet a huge uplift in demand from our customers in London, particularly for high-spec DVS-compliant vehicles and trailers, designed for a wide range of industries and applications.
“Further improving our high levels of customer service and after-sales support is also a priority to ensure we can attract new business. And of course, we are very focused on growing and strengthening relationships with our loyal and long-standing customers.”
In recent months, MV Commercial has ramped up its specialist vehicle build and supply programme, bucking market trends at a challenging time for the industry. Its independence allows the firm to offer an choice of commercial vehicles, enabling it to support operators of all sizes with a flexible approach to truck design and finance options, alongside market-leading servicing, maintenance and turnaround times.
The Airdrie-based firm operates other sites south of the border in Grantham, Haydock and Oxford, and also runs a van centre in Livingston.
